The GLA List – Dr. Bill Dorfman

May 19, 2018

I owe my smile to my parents and Dr. Dorfman.
I had him do my upper teeth with veneers a million years ago after my original teeth were totally destroyed from years of diet soda and teenage bulimia. There was simply no enamel left. I have loved Dr. D ever since, his entire office and oh how I miss my now retired hygienist (who happens to be The Cobrasnake’s mom – fun fact!)
But it’s not just me. Affectionately known as “America’s Dentist,” Dr. Bill Dorfman is widely recognized for creating smiles for many of Hollywood’s brightest stars including some of your favorite celebrities and Instragram muses including Katy PerryMark WahlbergEva Longoria to name a few.
DrDorfman is a world-renowned lecturer and author of the best-selling cosmetic dentistry book, The Smile Guide & the New York Times bestseller Billion Dollar Smile.
The innovative and accomplished doctor is also renowned in his field as an energy-brimming inventor and brilliant entrepreneur who has brought award-winning innovations to the world of dentistry.
If you are in need of excellent cosmetic work or just a kick ass dental office, I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Dorfman and his entire practice.
